Liberty Towers takes turning houses into homes seriously. The most recent proof is its “Wired World” event.
In an innovative partnership with the Best Buy home electronics chain, Liberty Towers buyers got the chance of a lifetime – the opportunity to view some of the most advanced home technology from the manufacturers themselves such as Bose, HP and Microsoft. The partnership between Best Buy and Liberty Towers is a first of its kind for Ontario. Held recently at the Liberty Towers presentation centre, the evening was one in a series of similar events, says Walter Jensen, a principal in the CanAlfa Group, developers of the 45-acre Liberty Village, where Liberty Towers is soon to be built.
Purchasers of a new condo at Liberty Towers will have the privilege of one of five special home and home office high-tech packages that they can select just before they move in to their new condominium. These packages have been created for the convenience of the purchasers to make their “wired” decision much easier.
“Our overriding goal at Liberty Towers has been to create an exciting and vital new community where it is a joy to live, work and play,” says Jensen. “That means offering buyers the opportunity to turn their homes into showplaces. Not just houses or high-rise suites but wonderfully rewarding living spaces.”
In the case of the Wired World event, that meant turning dens into home theatres, living rooms into cabarets or concert halls, and work-at-home spaces into leading-edge business centres – all customized to buyers’ personal needs.
“It’s a Wired World” was part party, part entertainment spectacular. There was not only the chance to view one or more of five electronics packages, but also free giveaways and door prizes, courtesy of Best Buy brand-name suppliers and Liberty Towers.
For example, lucky Liberty Towers residents and soon-to-be-residents could choose from one of two Movie Buff packages, home theatres that turn living rooms or dens into a personal version of an evening out at Cineplex. They could opt for Music Lover, an all-in-one solution to providing surround sound in every room of their new home or suite. If a total entertainment solution with all the bells and whistles topped residents’ lists, Liberty Towers and Best Buy offered one called the Entertainment Fanatic. For the Techie there was the Computer Wiz. This package provides a state-of-the-art laptop with the WiFi technology to work anywhere at anytime.
Liberty Towers residents need not be technology experts either. The Geek Squad was in attendance to offer tips, explanations and inside advice on how to get the most from today’s leading edge IT.
Liberty Towers buyers will make their choice of package prior to moving to their new home, then book a personal appointment to meet with a Best Buy expert just before move-in date to plan installation and customization.
“The Best Buy evening is just one of the many events and services we offer Liberty Towers buyers and residents,” says Jensen. “It is all part of fostering relationships and building a village in the heart of the city.”
Liberty Village is by almost any measure an outstanding achievement. On 45 acres of what was once industrial land, CanAlfa is creating the perfect village within a neighbourhood. The site, just south of King Street West and west off Strachan Avenue, will also have commercial and retail space encompassing everything from a new shopping centre to a converted historic factory which will be dedicated to specialty retail shops.
There will be parks and greenspace galore. One of the wonders of Liberty Village is that it is perhaps 12 minutes by streetcar from King and Yonge Streets, minutes from the King West entertainment and restaurant area and just steps to the lake.
Eventually, the Village will be home to 3,500 residents. They have already started moving in, establishing their own community.
CanAlfa’s first phase was the creation of urban condo townhomes. It built 476 on the north side of Liberty at Strachan, which sold rapidly, and another 120 are planned for the south side of Liberty Street. The original homes have proven to be a wise investment.
CanAlfa has launched the first phase of Liberty Towers, two high rises, offering spectacular views of the lake and city which will be joined by a four-storey podium. The neighbourhood of Liberty Village will eventually be home to a dozen mid to high rise condominiums situated at various parts of the site.
“Liberty Village represents the best place in downtown Toronto to live, work and play,” says Jensen.

A home boasting beautiful design in a neighbourhood where the amenities abound and gorgeous greenspace surrounds is hard to come by in the city. And if you are lucky enough to find it, you can expect to pay an arm and a leg. Arten Development Group is offering the opportunity to truly have it all, at a price that’s hard to believe, at Riverside.
“It’s the most affordable site in the GTA for condominiums,” says Arten Development Group’s Dean Artenosi. With maintenance fees at just $0.32/sq. ft., at Riverside, it’s not about buying into the pizzazz of expensive facilities that residents may or may not use. Riverside is about a family-oriented lifestyle, energy-efficient design, and making use of the natural amenities the area has to offer.
A name like “Riverside” only begins to describe what you’ll find in this prime location. The development itself is a collection of luxuriously appointed condominium residences nestled along the awe-inspiring 100-kilometre Humber River. Amid Toronto’s concrete jungle, this winding river brings its historical, natural beauty and thriving wildlife, parks, bike trails and hiking paths â€“ a serene get-away from the hustle and bustle â€“ right into your backyard.
Businesses and services are also easily accessible, and a new Real Canadian Superstore is steps away. “It’s quite a complex right across the street,” says Artenosi, “and it’s really revitalized the area.” But if it’s a taste of downtown you crave, you’ll find all the tempting cuisine, shopping and non-stop entertainment just a short 15-minute drive away. If you’d prefer to let someone else do the driving, the TTC is right at your doorstep. And if your calling is outside the GTA, Hwy. 401 is literally up the street, offering easy access to Hwy. 400, and ready to take you anywhere you need to go.
Rising in the middle of it all are Riverside‘s two structures â€“ the mixed-use three-storey Building A which faces Weston Road and shares commercial space downstairs; and right behind it, the dramatic 10-storey, tiered tower of Building B, featuring modern design, floor-to-ceiling glass, oversized terraces and balconies, and exquisite and spacious open-concept layouts.
Many can only dream of calling a place like this “home,” but the opportunity is here, the time is now, and the price is right at Riverside. With only 20 units remaining, you can be sure they will be spoken for in no time, so don’t delay.
Embracing the riverside appeal, the suites are named after the world’s great rivers, and start from only $129,900. Studios, one-bedroom, one-bedroom-plus-den and two-bedroom designs offer something for every type of buyer.
From bottom to top, Arten Development Group has paid careful attention to even the smallest detail. Professionally landscaped grounds and a circular driveway separate the two buildings while leaving a lasting first impression on residents and guests when being picked up or dropped off out front.
When you wish to invite your guests up, underground parking is available for residents and visitors alike. Secured access to the parking garage and lobby mean only welcome guests gain access to the building. Enter the designer lobby, with a banquette seating area and executive concierge desk. Two custom-designed, high-speed elevators await to whisk you to your suite.
Suite interiors are just as impressive as the main building. From floor to ceiling, Riverside offers luxury in the form of fashion and function. All suites in Building A feature nine-ft. ceilings, while in Building B, ceilings range from eight ft., three inches up to 10 ft. in height. Floor-to-ceiling windows enhance the sense of space and flood the suite with plenty of natural light.
Floors are finished with a choice of engineered hardwood in the living room, dining room, kitchens and foyer, as per plan, and choose from engineered hardwood or plush broadloom in the bedroom.
The open-concept kitchen designs are a chef’s delight. Flat-panel or shaker-style cabinets, available in a variety of finishes, offer lots of storage space. The sleek countertops, available in a choice of designer finishes, offer plenty of space to prepare meals. The five premium appliances and the stainless steel sink with contemporary chrome-finish single-lever faucet and spray (as per plan) help make the job a little easier.
The bathroom is your private oasis, with gleaming ceramic tiles, laminate countertops, quality cabinets, vanity mirror and contemporary faucet-tap set. Unwind in the deep, five-ft. soaker tub. Tub and shower enclosures (as per plan) are tiled right up to the ceiling.
Suites are prewired for cable television in the living room, master bedroom and second bedroom or den, as per plan. Provisions for high-speed Internet access are available.
Is there anything more you could ask for? The best part is, excited purchasers don’t have to wait â€“ they can move in today! Experience life at Riverside for yourself.
